ESP shred monster Joey Tafolla, well known for his stints with Jag Panzer and his solo work, has just joined the Graham Bonnet Band. As you're probably aware, Graham Bonnet is the rock singer who spent time with Rainbow (doing the super-classic late '70s hit "Since You Been Gone"), the Michael Schenker Group, Alcatrazz, and more.
Joey had previously been performing on a very recognizable LTD EC-1000 in Snow White, but has since adopted the LTD SN-1000 for his upcoming work with Graham. The SN-1000 takes a classic traditional shape, and soups it up for modern playing styles and tones. The SN-1000 Series is available in a number of models featuring Seymour Duncan pickups, EMG pickups, Floyd Rose tremolos, Wilkinson tremolos, and a variety of finish options.
Per a recent article in Blabbermouth, Joey says, "I have always loved Graham's voice and his music. His sense of melody and harmonic awareness is just amazing. He creates sophisticated harmonies as easy as I can eat a bowl of cereal. Being able to work with someone on this level is extremely gratifying." We congratulate both Joey and Graham for coming together in what will likely be a very productive partnership for both of these rock industry pros!
